Stunning Dunning (AKA Terri-Ann) is a vibrant self-taught artist whose bright magical style conveys a sense of joyous spirit. Each piece spills over with the juice of life, filling the viewers’ eyes with a sense of playfulness.
Terri-Ann is best known for her modern and creative innovation of an old craft known as floor art. Early settlers would recycle used sails to insulate the floorboards of their homes.
This process involves painting acrylic on canvas and sealing each piece with floor varnish. The finished product can be used indoors and outdoors. They are waterproof, UV-protected, pet-friendly, and can be washed with soap and water.
She invites you to grace your space with these unique handpainted canvasses.
Stunning Dunning seeks to inspire and be inspired. A self-described rabble-rouser and occasional artist, Stunning spends her time conjuring, creating, and cavorting in her tree-fort studio on Salt Spring Island, BC.
